"the washington post" says she's next in line for the job. director robert mueller stepping down in september after 12 years on the job. >>> new york cardinal timothy dolan says the catholic church should be more welcoming to gay people. he tells abc the catholic church loves gays and lesbians despite opposition to same-sex marriage. >> we need to do better to be sure that our defense of marriage is not reduced to an attack on gay people. i admit we haven't been too good on that. >>> and to the island off the southeast coast of africa, massive flooding there. it has killed at least ten people in the catholic city. many of the victims were swept away by fast rising waters. more than six inches of rain fell in less than an hour and more unfortunately is expected. >>> to the world of wall street now. cnbc's jackie deangelis joins us. good morning to you. >> good morning, betty. the markets are looking to continue their winning ways. this is as we kick off the second quarter. the
'm very hopeful that we can get this passed. >> dana milbank writes in "the washington post". obama on guns too little too late. on almost every topic from budget negotiations to national security, washington seems only to act these days in response to crisis if it acts at all. obama errored in trying to use newtown to build support for his positions on taxes and energy and immigration and he compounded the error by sending j joe biden to conduct a study. once the president took his foot off the accelerator no other action not even michael bloomberg's ad campaign to maintain the momentum. mark kelly has been, obviously, outspoken advocate on gun control legislation and he has been going around and buying guns and showing how long it takes to fill out a background check. i think it was like five minutes and 36 seconds, just if you care. if you can wait five minutes and 36 seconds for your gun. >> so i'm hearing behind the scenes there is still a deal that is being worked on universal background checks but yesterday it sound like it might be dead. >> they are still trying to figure ou
to get washington working? if obama is president for another four years, i guess vote democrat to make the house sways back. is that a credible portion of the electorate? >> i think you will find that voters frequently try to express a dissatisfaction. and normally the way they do that is by voting against the incumbent party. and sam, in the house of representatives, that would be the republicans. and so if you were trying to vote anti gridlock in the next congressional election, it seems that would be an anti republican -- >> you know, i might be the only one in d.c. who thinks this, but i have -- >> that's why you're here. >> this is new york. >> for the speech you're about to make. >> i do believe that over time sequestration is going to cause so much pain in these districts that the party that's most associated with it will face electoral consequences. and that happens to be in this case the republican party. and i think they know it, too, which is why they have gone through this painstaking technique of saying it was obama's idea. because they want him to take some of the blame a
control. columnist dana millbank in today's "washington post" points out obama made an impassioned bid this week to revive prospects for gun control legislation but it's difficult to escape the conclusion that his efforts come too late. as dana says harry reid had to drop the plans for legislation on the assault weapons ban, and large clips because the support wasn't there, would that have happened regardless of the president maybe not having been pushing this agenda as he should have been? >> well, i think it would have happened regardless of any president. i mean the truth of the matter is that the nation's attention span is -- we -- it's very thin and we've forgotten pretty quickly. so i think that's why you saw the white house and the president this week sort of on this reminder tour, not just on gun control, but on immigration,age other things. you know, he spent so much time focused on sequestration and he was in israel last week he sort of aimed to bring it back this week and say, hey, we haven't forgotten. these are still my priorities. but you know, congress and washington doe
at this national journal headline that says, "obama's gambit raises pressure on boehner, edges washington towards a budget deal." do you think that is what this is doing? do you think the president is seeing who will blink over it? >> as you heard the congresswoman say, a lot of folks and not even just progressives, folks were concerned about chain cpi and sort of the impact that that's going to have. the president is really going to have to make clear what's the full picture in order to have the support that he needs to raise those stakes for boehner. i agree with what the congresswoman is saying that there's every likelihood given to history that there will be some reason why some -- now that this idea has been proposed by the president, it's a terrible idea and we can't go back to the status quo arguments. >> we heard on "morning joe" this morning that this could potentially exploit the cracks within the republican coalition. is this doing just that, exploiting those cracks and the analogy that i use that the republican party is like lucy with the football and charlie brown, once they get some
will not be good enough anymore under the new law. in washington, d.c. at the federal level, president obama has just established a bipartisan commission to try to fix what has gone so wrong with the basic running of the elections in this country, but in the states where they're actually making policy on these matters, already this year we have seen 55 measures introduced to make voting harder. not easier, harder, in 30 states. it's as if republicans in state legislatures looked at the debacle of 2012, the stay in line election and lawsuits over new requirements for voting and couldn't wait to order a second helping of that. today, arkansas republicans finished passing laws to make voting harder, a democrat governor vetoed the bill, but they overrided it, so it will be much harder to vote in the great state of arkansas. in virginia, there was not even that last barrier of a governor. lawmakers passed their voter i.d. bill, and bob mcdonnell signed it, and that was it, let's make it harder. joining us now is a virginia state senator, and an opponent of virginia's new law. senator, thank you so mu

with presidents. if there was a stigma you wouldn't see michelle obama at the oscars. i think this stigma mass gone away with this presidency. but the reality is, you know, you see a spike in the celebrity in washington, d.c. you've seen a spike in celebrity coming to washington, d.c. the fact that "tmz" is talking about barbara walters is more in their wheel house, they talk about paul ryan, they talk about president obama, they talk about michelle obama. there are so many outlets that traditionally have no interest in washington because washington is traditionally thought of as boring and stale. but the sex appeal for better or worse, in the past four years has significantly upticked. >> from politico this evening, from the click column people watching in washington, d.c., the head library is that the daughter of senator mccain gets a tv show. we go to glen. >> thank you very much. i want to say about the comment about the appearance of politicians and that kind of thing. one, i guess that means the old chi shea that politics is -- hee shea that politics is show business. i kind of disagree

. joining us the former senior adviser to president barack obama, david axelrod. former congressman and chair of the national republican campaign committee, former virginia james davis, peggy noonan of the washington street journal. jeanne, welcome to all. we'll talk about two hours of show into one hour. david axelrod, on immigration, a lot of republicans don't believe the president wants to sign immigration bill this year. they believe that he wants the politics, he wants the political issue, because it's been so successful for democrats. >> i understand their paranoia because it was a terribly difficult issue for them and continues to be. he wants this accomplishment. this is a legacy item for him. there is no doubt in my mind he wants to pass comprehensive immigration reform. >> tom davis, can republicans even start talking to hispanics on other issues if this issue isn't put behind them no matter how it turns out? >> first of all, they'll get a vote. you may get like we did it in 2006, a house version and senate version. very, very different. not reconciled. at that point every
hope that this is an example to the rest of the nation. certainly to our leaders in washington, who seem so deeply divided about an issue such as universal background checks, where the country is not divided itself. >> connecticut acts as president obama is out west today, trying to pressure congress to act. >> this is not easy. and i'll be blunt, a lot of members of congress, this is tough for them. because those who are opposed to any form of legislation, legislation affecting guns, they're very well organized and they're very well financed. but it can be done if enough voices are heard. >> joining me this hour, mark kelly, who with his wife, former congresswoman, gabrielle giffords, has become a leading voice for tighter gun laws across the nation. >>> countering the threats, the u.s. sends new missile defenses to guam as north korea deploy as medium-range missile to its coast. we're live with richard engel. >>> and horroring courageous women. and happy anniversary to us. join us as we celebrate our five years of "andrea mitchell reports." >> some of the responsibility for the gr
obama. magazine, theyle traditionally have no interest in washington because they think it is stated, boring, and still, but the sex appeal, for better or worse, in the past four years, it has significantly increased. megan and on politico, mccain, the daughter of senator john mccain, getting a television show. caller: i'd like to say a few things about professor hall's comments about the appearance or real appearance of politicians. i guess that kind of means the old cliche that politics is show business for ugly people is kind of over. more seriously though, i kind of disagree. i do not care what any of these people look like or anything like that and i do not care and i think it kind of underestimates the obvious, which i think is really a big problem here. get thisre you nonsense because the powers that be, whatever it cliche you want to use, they do not think people want to see this serious news. i think if you do put out serious news on a regular basis, by and large, most people would if they thought it had some direct impact on their life. we are talking about the decline in t
're most likely just a few weeks away from the obama administration's final decision on whether to give the keystone pipeline a thumbs up or thumbs down. on the eve of the keystone decision, safe to say nearly every environmentalist in washington believes the president will let this happen. but don't underestimate the impact that this story might have on the approval process. a 65-year-old pipeline ruptured in the town of mayflower, arkansas, 22 miles spewing thousands of barrels of oil through a housing development, across lawns and down residential streets. >> so that is a pipeline that is busted and has flooded the neighborhood. and is going all the way to the drain at the end of the street. the smell is unbelievable. i mean, look. incredible. and that is oil. >> oil on the streets of a residential community. exxon is still cleaning up the spill. the question is will pictures like these give environmentalists another opportunity to lobby the president and the new secretary of state john kerry on keystone. last night on chris hayes' new show "all in," one argued the damage in arkansas
. >>> for years now, we've been hearing opponents of president obama and some supporters of his say that he just isn't willing to fight for what he believes in. that he compromises too easily, that he gives up too easily. today, with most of washington politicians and the political media firmly convinced that nothing significant can be done on gun and ammunition control, the president stubbornly stood and fought for it, but he did not stand alone. he stood with the parents of children from connecticut to california whose lives were snuffed out by gun violence. >> that anguish is still fresh in newtown. less than 100 days ago that happened. and the entire country was shocked. the entire country pledged we would do something about it and this time would be different. i haven't forgotten those kids. shame on us if we have forgotten. >> the president pushed for approval of all of his legislative proposals, including an assault weapons ban, a limit on high-capacity magazines and he especially emphasized his most popular proposal. >> 90% support background checks that will keep criminals and people wh
to serve. >>> president obama has already chosen a woman. julia pearson. to head the secret service and now hes is reportedly ready to name another top law enforcements official, a woman, lisa monaco to head the fbi. the "washington post" is reporting that lisa monaco, the president's chief counterterrorism adviser is on the top of the president's short list to replace long-time director robert mueller. she's only one of many women who could make headlines. joining me now bloomberg view margaret carlson and washington bureau chief, elizabeth bloomler. hillary clinton coming back from a little time to clean the closets, whatever she's been doing. get some rest. and she's been off since she left the state department now we're going to see her twice this week and in coming weeks on paid speeches. first, vital voices so near to her heart. this is the event tuesday night and joe biden will also be there i'm told. >> he's making noises, possibly. >> about 2016. she's going to appear at tina brown's event on friday in new york. this is a high profile relaunch of the former secretary of state. >> w
in 2008 was hillary clinton would run and be the nominee, a little known senator barack obama upset that, and the rest is history. i suspect behind closed doors she's going to take some time off and do exactly what she's telling everybody, but nobody believes. >> joe biden was asked by "the washington post," has the race already begun, mr. vice president? the answer was, no. if you know anything about me, i've been making that same speech for 30 years. look into it. he has. he has great street cred. the women in the audience knew it, as much as they loved hillary, but that was clearly her home court advantage, but they know that joe biden has the sponsor of the violence against women act and has been a fighter for that. >> and it's been reauthorized. you know, we all know that joe is a mench, and the vice president is somebody, you know, who has a wide base of support, not only in the democratic party, but among a lot of people in the country, that believe that he is hard-working, straight-talking guy, but, you know, i thought the dynamic between former secretary clinton and vice preside
a spike in the coverage in washington, d.c. and the fact dmz even talk about barbara walters the talk about keith olberman and about paul ryan and president obama and michelle obama. us weekly is the same, people magazine. there are so many outlets that have no interest in washington because they were traditionally thought of as boring and stale. but just in the past four years and is significantly out. >> host: from politico this evening, people watching in washington, d.c. the headline is mccain it's a tv show, the daughter of senator john mccain. we go to michigan next, to hear from glen. >> i would like to say a couple things about professor hall's appearance of politicians and that kind of thing. one is i guess it means the clich the caller showed this more seriously though, i kind of disagree. i really don't care what any of these people look like. i feel that this kind of underestimating the audience. i think it is really a big problem. that's where you get a lot of this nonsense because the power that the elite or whenever clich you want to use, they don't think people
after the show launched a ceremony was held in washington, d.c. for the unveiling of dr. martin luther king jr.'s memorial and with president obama giving the keynote address we thought it would be a perfect time to look at legacy of dr. king alongside the man who walks in his wake, the nation's first black president. we discuss dr. king to occupy wall street. we were proud of that segment then and still are today. take a lock. >> back with msnbc contributor and columnist, one of my favorite magazine "the nation," melissa harris-perry and bob herbert, author of "waking up from the american dream" and our special guest whose play "mountaintop" opened last week. want to play this clip from dr. king on "meet the press." it's awesome we have the nbc library and got to watch every appearance of dr. king on "meet is press." this is dr. king talking about the efficacy of non-violent direct actions and demonstrations. >> recent polls suggest that in terms of national reaction, demonstrations are now counterproductive. by continuing them, don't you run the risk of doing more harm than good? >>
